Primping for the Make-Believe Fancy Dress Ball
Photography by: Andria Lo
Primp is a selection of images taken by photographer Andria Lo, which show young women dressing themselves up for the Comic Con International + Anime Overdose in California last year. Andria says of her project that costumes and costume-play are a major part of the world of comics conventions. They seem to distract from the introversion of the hobby. While attending one of these events, she was struck by the outrageous costumes and fascinated by how they could be completely re-contextualized in private settings. Strangely enough, with the exhibitionist element removed, the costumed are even more of a spectacle.
